He got to the arena at around 4:15 and stuck around taking photos and signing autographs until about 5:00. He was very cool and very generous. Didn't get a chance to talk or ask him anything (where the hell is Red Flag Day!?) but we got some great shots and videos.

That's what I'd like to know! I'd much rather hear Red Flag Day than American Soul.

As Iím sure you know, Omaha has lots of tickets available on Ticketmaster, even verified resale GAs (which I havenít seen on TM for other shows). GAs this morning were $105 plus fees, which isnít all that bad of a price.


Edit after reading previous post; Okay, looks like secondary market is cheaper than TM!

Thanks! I'm mainly interested in any meet ups since I'll likely be going solo. Haven't pulled the trigger on a ticket yet.

So far, mostly just discussion about how excited people are for the show, and some tickets being posted for sale. I think maybe later
There may be postings about a fan meet up if one is planned. Iíll try to remember to post that info here if I see it.

Usually these types of groups also post info about the GA line once that gets going.

General U2 Discussion / Re: A post 80's fan perspective on live aid

I went to see U2 two weeks before live aid at Milton Keynes Bowl & there was 55,000 people there so they were well on the way to being a big band but live aid propelled them to mega stars

Yes I do remember the era enough to know we all embraced the idea of Live Aid big time. And on the flip side, we were way less jaded at the time. So yeah, I guess I can see Bono's antics were probably not dissected and condemed like they would be today - just taken at face value: what the heck is that guy doing? Whoa, he just jumped over! Oh, he was trying to get to that girl, that's sweet. Who are those guys anyway, have to check them out.

Wow, now I'm starting to miss a simpler time.

I have no problem with the look whatsoever - always liked the outfit, love the mullet, that mullet is amazing. I've seen a lot of mullets in real life back in day day; Bono had some amazing hair to do that much mullet. Like, I gotta wonder about extensions, but I seriously doubt it. Also the blond highlights should look awful, but he pulled it off.

Are they even going to give Gloria a chance or give up on it like I&E.  Out of 8 shows, didn't even get to hear it once last time.  Not holding my breath to hear it by the time they hit Montreal.
Glad to see All Because of You.  Always liked that song.  Again, how many times will they play it before they abandon it.  It would be a good closer.  Time for U2 to close out with a rocker.  Way better than closing with 13 which is a terrible choice and total waste of a song in the set.

So I am the same era and age as U2 and Live Aid was just part of the culture of the era.  I didn't find it cringy nor did I dissect it in detail and besides I liked the Boomtown rats at the time and hence Bob Geldoff. It was was it was at the time.  I was already a fan of U2 loving songs like New Years Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday and the sound of Edge and the passion in Bonos voice.  Guys in Mullets and sleeveless shirts or ripped jeans and flannelette checked shirts were just the norm really and they were just cute.  They didn't sound rough to me they just sounded like a young band full of passion with an awesome guitar sound.  The performance of Bono at live aid was just endearing and quite funny at the time.
